themoon02aCongratulations Grand Jury Winner « Relaxed reviewing of the day » by Carlos_Santero
« This image stood out as a showcase of the beauty that can be created by our natural world. The colours in this shot are gentle on the eye, the simple yet powerful position of the cheetah with the fading light of day is just spectacular, and the subtle yet encompassing presence of the moon makes this image complete.  It is stunning. » – Rachel Stewart

A perfect image for this theme! What a brilliant way to use the central composition. The presence of fog and use of high key here is near perfect. The silhouette of the lone willow tree and birds bring out the soul of this amazing image!” – Patrick Marson Ong

Lumières du monde

Lumières du monde
Les photographes voyageurs sont de grands romantiques. Ces voleurs de lumière se lèvent très souvent aux premières lueurs de l’aube pour capter ces ambiances à la brume légère.

Cowboys by Dieter Blum

Everyone is familiar with the concept of the lonesome cowboy, a legendary American figure that has become a universal symbol for freedom, adventure, and independence thanks to westerns starring the likes of John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. This is the image a well-known cigarette company had in mind when, back in 1992, they commissioned Dieter Blum for an advertising campaign that was to become a part of photo history. In a project that lasted almost twelve years, Blum travelled to Texas, New Mexico and Utah, the homelands of American cowboys, to accompany them as they went about their daily work. Searching for authenticity, Blum eschewed models and make-up and focused on the essential: man and his horse. From the lasso-swinging cowboy on the fiery mustang galloping across the Texas prairie to the lone rider against the background of a glowing sunset, Dieter Blum’s cowboys have long become iconic.
